LUBBOCK, Texas — Ochai Agbaji made the go-ahead layup with 13 seconds left and finished with 23 points as No. 5 Kansas beat No. 14 Texas Tech 58-57.

The win was the 30th in a row for the Jayhawks in a conference opener.

Agbaji made four 3-pointers but got the game-winning points for the 7-1 Jayhawks when he worked inside and took an inbound pass from Marcus Garrett. Texas Tech had one more chance, but Terrence Shannon's mid-range jumper was blocked by Jalen Wilson to end the game.

Shannon had 20 points with four 3s for the 6-2 Red Raiders, while Mac McClung had 21 points.
